HELP NEEDED FOR BUILDING A STRAWBALE ROUNDHOUSE FROM SEPTEMBER TIL END OF OCTOBER

My name is Sabine, 33, and soon I will be starting up an organic plant nursery, vegetable and herb farm in the Abruzzo region in Italy.

Together with my friend and neighbour Craig, Host number 26964, we will be building an eco strawbale roundhouse this summer, about 20 sqm large with a reciprocal green roof and semi earth-sheltered.

Tasks for helpers may vary from doing dry stone walls, preparing wood for construction, ramming tires with earth, putting straw walls up, render with clay and lime and rather "rough" gardening tasks like gras cutting, clearing woodland, weeding the veg beds and making firewood...

Around here are some interesting projects where often arrive wwoofers and other travellers. There is always a chance to meet interesting people. Things to see and learn: strawbale building, eco building in general and permaculture projects. For the rest - this is real countryside! Little villages with village life... absolutely lovely landscape and nature, 25 minutes drive to the next beaches and bigger cities. Moreover, from here you have the possibility to take coaches to Rome (ca. 4 hours) and Naples (3 hours) for daytrips or weekend trips.

I would like you to help about 6 hours per day, which can vary from day to day though (maybe one day I will need 7 hours and the next day only 5). Evenings and weekends off. I prefer helpers who can and want to stay at least two weeks or longer.

For any helpers coming this summer accomodation is in a tent, bathroom is outdoor and very basic, compost toilet outside! You should be fine with these living conditions. Internet access is possible, but please bring your own laptop.

Questions, doubts, more information and pictures gladly via e-mail! Take care,
Sabine
